Description: In the heart of the Gothic neighbourhood on la Plaça Real, the Mariscco Reial restaurant is located in a Renaissance-style building dating back to 1850. This historic site has housed a diverse range of activity, such as the Gran Cafe Espanyol, and later the Pedagogic Museum of Natural Sciences and taxidermy workshop. Respecting the original architecture, Mariscco Reial offers the chance to dine inside a wide, open space, with high ceilings and eclectic scenery, or alternatively, outdoors under the Plaça Reial porticoes and the lamp posts designed by Gaudi. Mariscco Reial is open all-year-round, and boasts a cosmopolitan atmosphere, with a case of seafood and fish showcasing the delicacies available. Serving Mediterranean cuisine, Mariscco Reial serves high quality, fresh produce, which is prepared to the guest's taste. Specialities include rice with lobster sauce and prawn soup, or the climate-controlled cellar showcases a wide selection of wine.

The food is quite good, but not wowy. Desserts are small. The sangria was nice. Service was ok. Outdoor tables in a lovely square.

“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

The food here was a both tasty and for such a tourist hot spot was reasonable value for money. Good wine and excellent sea food. Service was okay but the real winner here is the atmosphere of the square. Would definitely visit again.

“The reviews are not correct!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Because of the good reviews we desited to get our dinner here.
Big mistake...the food was oke but not special. The service was bad. Especialy on the end. We were kicked out with a lot more people. The people from mariscco want to go home, and did'nt care about the guest.
The only thing we liked was the sangria...

“Orgasmic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

The place is lovely just off la ramblas
We ordered lobster paiella its a dish for 2 & we had patatas bravas "best in barcelona"
The lobster paiella was orgasmic & by far the best dish we've ever had in barcelona .
A little bit expensive but worth every penny
Strongly recommended
Perfect place for a romantic dinner away from la ramblas buzz
